About this book

Case Studies in Bayesian Statistical Modelling and Analysis provides an accessible foundation into Bayesian modelling and analysis using real-world models. Each chapter comprises of a description of the problem, the corresponding model, the computational method, results, and inferences as well as the issues that arise in the implementation of these approaches. Coverage focuses on a real-world problems drawn from the editors' own experiences while illustrating the way in which the problem can be analyzed using Bayesian methods.
